Welcome to the Library!
Barrett Train
“You see, I don’t believe that libraries should be drab places where
people sit in silence, and that’s been the main reason for our policy of
employing wild animals as librarians….” (Monty Python)
Margaret Frick, Librarian
Nancy Costello, Library Assistant 
Celebrate Arts in the Schools Month with an homage to Duke Ellington
for our Library Night on March 10, 2015
Special Guests: the Army Blues Combo 
with Tony Walker (former Barrett parent) on piano.
             Library Night is from 7:00pm to 8:00pm in the library.
Join us for Barrett's Digital Learning Library Night on Tuesday January 13th from 6:30 to 8:00.  Note that it starts earlier than usual, at 6:30, so families can attend two sessions.  Come see how your students are using technology in their learning.
On Friday November 21 Barrett Library will have an author visit.  Arthur Dorros will be visiting from Seattle, Washington.   He has written many fiction and nonfiction books for children.  His latest book, Abuelo, is beautifully illustrated by Raul Colon.  Presentations will be at 8:45, 9:30, 10:45 and 1:00.
Welcome back!  September 2014 marks the 75th anniversary of Kate Waller Barrett Elementary School.
 As you come to the library this fall, please add favorite books to our Yellow Book Wall.  
Can you guess what movie is also celebrating its 75th anniversary?
